    Of course, the Atom Shop gives them more money, it's not like you had to pay 60 dollars for the priviledge of accessing it, right?

    No, it's an objective fact. The game is broken at its core because Bethesda doesn't know how to design multiplayer games. That is not even mentioning the countless bugs, terrible server issues and so on.

    The best kind of opinions and reviews on artistic mediums are subjective but that doesn't mean you just throw objectivity out of the window.

    Objectively speaking, Fallout 76 has a lot technical issues including unintended behavior occurring in the game, poor server stability, and crashing to desktop.

    If you can't stand the loop of shoot, loot, craft that Fallout 4 had, you aren't going to enjoy 76 either.

    Remember the old 2018 bug about crashing servers when launching a nuke? Well it seems it's back for at least console players:

    :rofl:

    What's up with Bethesda? In FO76 they keep fixing a bug and a in a patch later, they introduce the same bug again? What kind of team do they have that somehow manages to remove the new code that fix the bug and implements the really old one that makes that bug happen again? :shock:

    Didn't they work a patch on an outdate version once and when they uploaded it it patched in old bugs? Do they have like ZERO QA?

    As far as I'm aware the content is free but apparently you need people to do this with, which would be a problem since everybody I knew who played this, don't anymore. And after doing the endgame at launch, they mean it because high lvl enemies have a gazzilon health.

    Raids and loot chests in a Fallout game.... I can only shake my head at this point. I guess it makes sense; they already turned the Elder Scrolls into an MMO.
    On a long enough timeline, all successful studios will become WoW clone factories. And Blizzard itself becomes a smartphone dev.

    What's really sad is that unless they decide to release something else in the meantime, this game is going to be the official face of Fallout for the next decade.

    Worst thing probably will be that it will actually make Fallout 5 look good when Bethesda gets to it while it will probably be of the same quality of FO3 and FO4 or even worse.
    Bethesda fans will applaud it as a "return to form".

    Ugh I hate this Fallout nonsense by Bethesda so much.

    I thought we were supposed to hate Outer Worlds because of reasons?

    Wow. The last time I was paying attention to this company, they were still pretending to be ashamed about horse armor DLC. Something has definitely changed.

    We hate EGS for taking Outer Worlds away from us.

    Well, one of the reason to hate EGS anyway. It's trash so there's lots of reasons to hate it.

    Of course it will be worse, it will extend the pattern*; flashier, simpler, empowerment fantasy. It might even eschew the SPECIAL system in favor of simple avatar simulation—not even the pretense of an RPG; merely the reactive sandbox they aspire to; set in their nutty 50's world because it's Fallout (as they erroneously present it).

    Each Fallout [post Bethesda] reminds me of McMurphy in One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest—at the end, after they fried and gouged him silly.

    I think Bethesda is doing it by always expanding their markets with new gamers. That is what happend from Morrowind till Fallout 4. When Morrowind came out quite a few Bethesda fans said it was not really comparable to their previous games. And many Morrowind fans hated Oblivion, and many Fallout 3 fans absolutely hated Fallout 4. Bethesda simply managed so far to ride on the wave of the previous success. There are of course many players who simply don't give a fuck of course and just like everything Bethesda does. But they constantly increased their sales numbers with each new game. So this tells me they also simply replaced many old fans with new ones. The fact that no one even dared to criticise Bethesda in their reviews and only remember the flaws of previous games when new ones are out isn't helping either.

    The only question I have is, how long can they keep this up?
